137 requests for penalites filed by IFPI

IFPI has already filed 137 requests for penalties for illegal downloads of music in Switzerland since the first of March. Most of them demand the suspects to pay compensations of about CHF 10'000.- and more.

Since the beginning of the year, 25'000 requests for penalties have been filed in Germany. This amounts to 0.03% of the entire population or one in 3'240 people.

More on this can be found in an article from Le Temps for Switzerland and Heise for Germany.
